Rajeswary’s world is set to the tune of music ; her activities ring out like notes in a chord – music academics, researched articles, music direction, theatrics, quiz, anchoring, you name it. She has performed worldwide for decades now, and now you can find her music vlogs on the connoisseur-acclaimed kolkatasaga.com. She wants to pass on the heritage to her daughter, the apple of her eye, and to other members of the next generation, through unconventional and effective methods.
Her deep passion for art and aesthetics has made her explore new ways, and naturally, to be part of the dream that Nawarasa embodies, where she actively engages in creative and administrative activities.
After the cold morning breeze, the mist shrouding the waters of the lakes at Rabindra Sarovar, and his rowing sculls cutting through the water during a heavy downpour – Arindam always gets nostalgic at the mention of those days that he misses. But the rower-turned-IT Professional hardly got bogged down inside his office, discovering- and mastering- the flute, re-kindling the fondness of painting using digital tablet or anything which makes him curious and busy.
The veritable livewire at Nawarasa, Arindam manages everything from the nitty-gritties of business to liaisoning, down to the digital presence…loving every bit.
Super teacher by Profession, Designer by Passion is what Soumyadeep likes to describe himself. He finds Zen in his designing pursuits. He takes time out from his academic and management duties at school to make occasional sorties with the camera, and dabble in scriptwriting ventures, apart from sitting at his designing workstation and waiting for the creative burst to hit his cerebral cortex at unpredictable hours. Endless cups of coffee remain his primary addiction and fuel, besides technology, movies and music.
As lead designer at Nawarasa, he gives life to ideas, tries to bridge the impossible gap between the worlds of wonderful traditional art and modern day designing trends with all their unorthodox, rule breaking psychological aesthetics . He constantly dreaming of putting flauntworthy art in everybody’s merchandise.
A monotonous life is one, in which you cannot keep yourself busy with something new always, feels Arundhati, balancing her academic responsibilities as a teacher with her endless hobbies with style and aplomb. She makes ornaments, creates objects of home decoration, paints pots, tends to a blooming and flourishing rooftop garden, cares for pets and other animals, and yet is always thirsty for a new craft or vocation. She self-taught herself drawing and painting after 40, a near impossible feat, and is presently exploring the age-old ethnic Alpana art of Bengal. All these have helped her tide over the toughest phases of her life, she professes.
At Nawarasa, working at the backend operations, throwing up ideas and seeing them come true are things that keep her thrilled.
